Lab 2: Epithelial Tissues   
For the following slides you will be expected to recognize the various types of epithelium, know their locations and be able to find the basement membrane and lumen were applicable.
Slide #4A (simple squamous epithelium
Slide #4 shows simple squamous epithelium from a cross sectional view where it looks thin. This epithelium is also called mesothelium. It is found on the same slide that has simple columnar epithelium but lines the outer edge. The blood vessels and lymphatic vessels that you see within the intestines are lined by endothelium.
Note on the same slide: (simple columnar epithelium, nonciliated)
Note the lumen of the intestines (Lumen: The cavity or channel within a hollow or tubular organ.). The lumen is lined by simple columnar epithelium. Locate: nuclei of columnar cells --- goblet cells --- lumen --- lamina propria (connective tissue of mucous membrane) --- apical cell membrane (thick because of microvilli).
 
Slide #3A (simple cuboidal epithelium in kidney)
Find the tissue. You can also see lumen and basement membrane in this slide.
 
Slide #5A (pseudostratified ciliated columnar epithelium)
Locate nuclei, cilia, and goblet cells as well as epithelium.
 
Slide #6A (stratified squamous epithelium, nonkeratinized)
Find lumen and connective and epithelial tissue. We will see keratinized stratified squamous epithelium when we look at skin.
 
Slide #7A (transitional epithelium)
Find the lumen and lamina propria (connective tissue) as well as the epithelial tissue.
